India: more women in parliament

With International Women's Day heading the week off, I thought I should mention this little tid bit that has ensued this week: 'India moves to reserve seats for women in parliament'. According to The Globe and Mail, India's upper house of parliament voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday for a historic bill that would reserve one-third of legislative seats for women, despite a boycott by socialist members. The bill now goes to the lower house, where it is likely to pass. 

Definitely a nice compliment to the week.
